Nalbach Engineering Co.: Bottle orientor for asymmetric bottles
With the servo-driven Neco-Orientor Inline “0/180” degree bottle orientor from Nalbach, bottles are accepted from a single lane source and, based upon a vision sensor’s output, allowed to pass if they are properly oriented, or spun 180 degrees if they are not properly oriented.

The Neco-Orientor augments the company’s line of plastic bottle unscramblers to provide a complete single source solution for bottle unscrambling and orienting applications.
Available as a fully integrated option for the company’s line of plastic bottle unscramblers or as a stand-alone product to meet the needs of many existing production lines. As an option for plastic bottle unscramblers, the Neco-Orientor and the unscrambler share a common HMI, vacuum conveyor and footprint, providing a complete and compact, fully integrated, solution for empty bottle handling. As a stand-alone system, the Neco-Orientor includes a vacuum conveyor section, safety enclosure and controls that easily integrate into an existing production line.
